  • Overview

    This dance workshop is primarily concentrated on choreography, the creative process and the analysis of movement. Different themes are addressed which reflect the contemporary as well as the ancient culture and art of Tuscany. Students will compose and work on original dances for a live performance at the end of the semester. Basic principles of composition and techniques of choreography will be used to explore themes which range from Medieval arts and society to the relationship between space and the body: how to express space by using one's body, and how the human body can create different types of space to communicate different meanings; the study of the expressiveness of body movement, and the relationship between the interior world and external appearance. Method: Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analysis. Prerequisites: One semester of Modern or Contemporary Dance or Classical Ballet.
